The boat trip past the huge pillars slowly sailing along taking in the views and chatting to the very knowledgeable guide.

Sun tan cream and hat - taking it up slowly the 400 steps to the lookout - don't rush!

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
Planet and peopleSmall group: Our junks are for less than 10 persons and tourists are informed what to do and how to keep the beauty of the Bay from our local guides’ code of conduct.
Local guide: We train the local guides in Halong, they must be from Halong city, they have to go through our course called “For a Green Halong Bay”.
Less fuel usage: We use the sails when possible, and we often turn off the engine while our travelers are swimming or visiting caves. We use rowboats and kayaks to visit the fishing village and lagoons to save energy and this is the best way to get to see Halong Bay and learn more about the fisherman’s lives here.
Local fishes: As soon as we anchor for lunch or dinner, you will see one of our crew – the cook will row the bamboo boat to buy fishes from the fishing village, this way we could have the freshest seafood and a good support to the fisherman.
Visit our project: For a Green Halong Bay, visitors will see our practical works being done here for the sake of Halong bay. We also support the local business here to be part of our cruise.
